Let us take you out of this world with Gaia!
Gaia is touring artwork by UK-based artist Luke Jerram, who is known globally for his innovative arts practice and large scale public artworks, including Museum of the Moon, which was on exhibit at the Muttart in 2018.
Measuring seven metres in diameter. Gaia features detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface. The artwork provides the opportunity to see our planet on this scale, floating in three-dimensions. The artwork has been touring internationally since 2018 in Hong Kong, Australia, Europe, USA and at the Natural History Museum in London.
The artwork is 1.8 million times smaller than the real Earth and slowly rotates, making one revolution every 4 minutes. The installation aims to create a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.
Gaia will be on display from January 14 - February 26, 2023.
